Candace Gingrich, Newt’s half sister, appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show last night to discuss her brother’s campaign. Candace, an out-of-the-closet lesbian, has publicly clashed with her famous sibling over gay marriage and other issues.

As part of his stance against same-sex marriage, Newt Gingrich has stated that were his sister to marry, he would not attend the wedding, which he did not. Candace announces in this clip, embedded via MSNBC, that were her brother to seize the Republican nomination, she would vote for Obama.
